    I'd keep a very close eye on the voltage at the battery when the engine is running, as that sounds more like an over-charging fault rather than a dying battery. You don't want it to happen again...

    VW couldn't be bothered doing the calibration required for the ESP of the R (because of it's increased performance over a regular Golf)
